Location: Brunshaw, England, UK.
Michael was a “really nice, bright kid” who was doing very well at school. Michael loved reading; he spent many hours at the library and he filled his room with so many books that his parents had to put up extra shelves. He loved “Merlin” and “Doctor Who”. He played the tuba in his school band.
Michael was bullied by a gang of older girls. Sometimes he had things thrown at him in class. At one point he went to the head of the school and asked for help, but the bullying didn’t stop.
Michael went home from school and hung himself.
